“Great Hotel on a great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is a top resort hotel. It has 6 wonderful restaurants serving fantastic food. The room we had (306) was on the beach and right by the pool. It was large and spotless. The staff are all very friendly and eager to please. The beach is good for walking and swimming, although there is some coral washed up which is rather sharp. The beach is public which is not a problem apart from the sellers who walk up and down, can be a pain!

We stayed at this resort for one week for a special birthday celebration, and LOVED it. We had a beachfront bungalow, and really liked our unit as (unlike some others) it was private and at the end of the row and so not viewed by passers-by on the resort's walkways. The unit had a nice patio with plunge pool, although we didn't use the pool much (other than to rinse our feet) because it was a bit cold (in September). This resort was refurbished in recent years, and is absolutely gorgeous, with pools of water everywhere, lovely Asian open wood buildings (reception, restaurants, etc), beautiful trees and manicured lawns and flowers, and a clean beach (which is raked each day by staff). We tried all of the restaurants and thought they were all great (bookings often required), although we did not re-visit the main buffet after trying it one night, as we found it a big too big and "family friendly" (a lot of little kids running around), for our needs. We loved the beach, the gym, tennis courts, restaurants. A major highlight for us was going out with a couple of boat guys who troll along this beach (licensed) to look for dolphins, etc. They tooks us out (usually on our own) to swim with schools of dolphins when they knew they were in the area. we also did the daily snorkle trips offered (included) by the resort, and these were usually very nice. The resort is very big, but spread out and (other than at breakfast) you are not necessarily aware of how many people are there. (we were also there in mid-late-Sept, which is not peak season). We loved it, and hope to go back!

This was one of the best hotels I have stayed in... Excellent food choice, fantastic pool and beach, courteous and professional staff, great for honeymooners, 10 min by taxi to gran baie..
Has been renovated 2yrs ago and looks in great condition , not the cheapest hotel but you will not be disappointed If you don't mind spending a bit more..

Trou aux Biches has it all. An amazing resort, beautiful and elegant. Huge but quiet. Greens and flowers all over the resort. Kind and helpful staff. Excellent cuisine. 9 tennis courts, SPA by Clarins, impressive rooms. And most of all, THE BEST SANDY BEACH on the island. Dont waste your time to find a better beach. Also the pool is propably one of the best. Expensive but it worths it!
The only annoying thing is that at the beach there are plenty of local itinerant tradesmen who they dont leave you easily to relax...
Sometimes is better to have a sunbed at the pool area and go from there to the sea for swim.

We stayed in the hotel in January for 10 nights 5 of us with parents and our son and we truly loved it! It was one of our best holidays ever. We generally travel a lot and like high standard of service, accommodation and food, and this place covers it all! Hotel is beautiful, spreader in amazing gardens full of plants and flowers - well kept. There are beautiful pools spreader through out the resort so you can swim anywhere you like all the time. Rooms are nice and spacious with very minimalistic design, but you have all you need. The only thing I would add here is some colour or a flower to lighten up the rooms. We had half board and we were really nicely surprised with the selection and quality of food and service, you can eat in all 6 restaurants where all have great food and big variety. Service is excellent! What is nice surprise is also a prices of wine for example as prices are very generous and selection of very wide. There is not a one complain about the restaurants or food - well gone.
Beach is relatively narrow and very long all along the resort with nice walk path around the beach. The only concern we had were many corals on the beach that are not always pict up or can not be easily picked up, so when going with kids its recommended to take a water shoe as some corals are pretty sharp. Also be aware that this beach is public so you see many local crafts and cloth salesman walking and offering stuff which at time can be a bit annoying, but can be ignored. The hotel itself is closed by to a small tourist town Grand Bay, nice place to visit for souvenirs shopping or restaurant experience. We rented a car also so had nice experience driving around the island - highly recommended.

We stayed here early January 2013 for 10 days.
Holidays wuith 2 young kids (4 & 7) are normally not a time for rest for the parents, but boy was this a welcome time for me to be proven wrong on that front.
I can make this review all about the wonderfull facilities at Trou Aux Biches Resort & Spa, which it certainly was.
But for me the fact that our kids WANTED to spend time at the Bob Marlin kiddies club, with all their exciting daily activities and excursions, allowed mom and myself to get some reading done, sip a few ice cold drinks by the pool side and basically just "chill".
I suppose the addage that " you are only as happy as your unhappiest child" holds very true.

I do not want to detract from the fact that the family suites were righ on the beach and they were beautifully appointed, each with their own pool.
The restaurants were brilliant and we did not have a single unpleasant meal during our visit.
The staff were friendly and always helpfull.
If I am to find fault, then it was that during morning breakfast (buffet) the service was a little lacking, but I suppose if you consider the amount of meals they serve and people coming through in the morning, then I can't really call that a complaint.
Be sure to take the boat ride (not included in the price) to go and watch the dolphins, well worth it.

We stayed here over Christmas 2012 (family of 6) for 13 nights and we had the best time.
The hotel is beautiful, the food in all the restaurants was genuinely excellent (and we're foodies with v high standards here) and the staff friendly.
The rooms we had were very modern, espEcially the bathrooms, and the outside shower (cleverly screened) was a nice touch. Plenty of space in the whole resort.
It's a fabulous setting, you can walk about a mile along the beach (which is a public beach).
There are loads of sunbeds so there was never any need to 'bag a bed' - even when the hotel was full over Christmas.
The wifi was patchy at best, the drinks service by the pool or on the beach not what you'd expect from a hotel of this standard and prices but that aside it was a top place and we'll definitely be going back.
My wife cooo'ed about the spa and how lovely it was.
